    Let's pretend for a moment that it was a regular Joe and his buddy in a car where these police officers discovered 1.5 pounds of marijuana and .2 pounds of shrooms. Do you think Joe and his buddy would be given a written citation and then allowed to leave?

    I wish these silly drug laws against regular people would go away. :mad:

    With normal people, the cops would've accused them of intent to distribute, because of the large amount of pot. With Willie, they figured it was all for personal use, so didn't bother.

    Precisely. That's why I'm so irritated by this, not that I want to see Willy go to jail or anything. His "crime" was no crime at all, or at least it shouldn't be.

    This reminds me of the time 2 years ago when David Crosby got busted. I was working one of his concerts and after the show his road manager came back looking for a 'bag' he had left behind. He had left it in his dressing room, so the road manager took it and we went on with our business. Well, the next day he apparently left the bag, containing a gun and some marijuana, behind at the hotel. One of the hotel staff found it and its contents and notified police.

    I don't know about you, but I would be a bit more careful about leaving those types of things behind--two days in a row.

    Funny story!
    In Vermont, where i live, willie nelson has been on these commercials for senator bernie sanders, where they are both saying how importants farms are to our state......its kind of funny, but not really....BUT THERES MORE!

    I was watching the interview they had with him after they filmed the commercials and he talked about his wife wanting to buy a car that ran on vegatable oil, and he said to his wife, "have you been in my stash!" and the next day this happens.....lol....figures i guess:)

    Does he even hide the fact that he smokes pot?

    I mean, if the police want an easy bust, they'd just follow Willie every day and bust him randomly. He's bound to have some.

    I'm surprised Louisiana police down south done this.

    Concerning the intent to distribute comment earlier... isn't charging someone with that sort of "Minority Report'ish"? No one knows if they will or won't, and it makes no sense to charge someone with a crime they have not committed. Besides, I know of plenty of people who buy in bulk, just because it's fewer interactions needed in the long run. Makes sense, economically.

    And yes, do away with drugs laws, please.

    But he would have had a gun sitting in the backseat, or even on the front seat in some (wanker's) case.
